Pros

The only Pro to working at Echo, Inc would be there employee health insurance, The employee cost vs the benefits received are very good. Free rental of there power equipment is also a nice feature. Believe me, none of this is worth the disfunction in the workplace.

Cons

The downsides of working for Echo:

Everyone, and I mean everyone, under the management level are very unhappy employees. This is a Japanese owned company and they impose their management style upon the US managers that work there. Workers are not treated fairly, all cubicles are open air situated directly outside the managers offices...you feel constantly on display and it is intentional. Asking for time off or vacation is frowned upon. Even taking a sick day is rare....most managers come in sick and expect you to do the same. Work is scrutinized upon belief. Most is due to the fact that the managers there are extreme micro managers, basically in fear of Japans corporate officers and managers.
The human resource department is controlled by the President and Managers of the company and does nothing to instill common workplace fairness. Rules for time off differ if you are management vs non management. Certain department managers have been known to belittle their employees to the point of tears, with no ramifications from HR. Have I said enough??? RUN from a job here.

Advice to Management

I couldn't offer any advice to the management there. They are so closed minded and such micro managers they would not listen.

    I worked at Echo Incorporated full-time

    Pros

    There is alot of opportunity to make improvements. The production staff is fairly open minded when considering change.

    Cons

    Upper management runs on poor systems. Japan has a major influence on decisions and limits the staff in decision making. Strategic planning is absent among higher lever executives.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in motivated individuals who are hungry for change. Stir things up once and awhile.
